Game of Thrones leads Emmy nominations, but Netflix dethrones HBO as leader

2018 Emmys Michael Che Colin Jost

2018 Emmy Award Nominations

Netflix is the most nominated network, with 112 - breaking a 17-year streak at the top for HBO.

HBO's Game of Thrones is closely followed by dystopian sci-fi series The Handmaid's Tale, which gained 20 nominations and won top drama past year.

"GLOW" star Alison Brie wasn't nominated for her work on the Netflix series, in which she plays a struggling actress who joins a TV show focusing on women's wrestling. In three Emmy categories, minority actors account for more than half the nominees: Supporting actor in a limited series or movie, guest actor in a comedy series and guest actress in a drama series.

While there was a major turnover in the best comedy series category this year, helped by the absence of three-time victor Veep and also involving the snub of five-time victor Modern Family, an even bigger seismic shift happened last year in the best drama series field.

Although season seven of Game of Thrones aired in summer 2017, due to the Emmys' eligibility cutoff, the HBO drama had to wait until this year to submit anything for consideration.

Amazon's original shows received 22 nominations, including The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel for the Best Comedy. Oh was nominated Thursday for an Emmy for outstanding lead actress in a drama series. "Game of Thrones" helped boost the premium cable service's total and became the most-nominated series of all time, with its 129 nods topping the 124 nominations earned by "ER".
